Kate Gosselin’s Daughters Insist Their Mom Didn’t Mess Them Up

Kate Gosselin’s daughters insist their mom hasn’t messed them up or ruined their lives.

Cara and Mady Gosselin are no doubt privy to the sort of stuff the public — including their father — says about Kate these days. Since the guy insists that her parental skills are more than a little questionable, the twins decided to address countless rumors that their existence is a Lifetime original movie waiting to happen.

“People expect us to be damaged… It’s so false. We’re fine. We’re better than ever, actually,” Cara recently explained to the folks at People magazine.

Mady added, “People think we’re supposed to be messed up, like, ‘Oooooh, the poor Gosselin kids, they’re going to be scarred for life, waaaaah.’ Here’s the big news: we’re not messed up.”

Kate Gosselin’s daughters added that their mom is frequently annoying on purpose just to get under their skin. Mady explained that this often involves Kate mispronouncing certain words on purpose. Despite all the drama that’s surrounded the family over the years, the girls appear normal and pretty well-adjusted.

“I wish they were a little more innocent in some ways. They’re savvy, and they’ve learned things about the world and people’s intentions that took me decades to learn,” Gosselin told the magazine.

She continued, “They’re more aware of their surroundings and can size you up with a glance. They’re nobody’s fools.”

One person who thinks Kate is doing a pretty poor job raising her kids is Jon Gosselin. During a recent interview with Philadelphia Magazine, the father of eight took issue with his ex-wife’s parenting skills. This includes Kate’s penchant for posting a lot of her personal business on social media.

“She tweets everything. To the world, all about my children. I think it’s disgusting and awful. They can’t even have a normal life, Kate wants to still be on television. She’s now digging into the past, because that’s what sells. Too late, honey. No one gives a f***, really,” he said.

While they didn’t come right out and say it, chances are Kate Gosselin’s daughters sat down with People magazine to defend their mom. Kate has yet to respond to her ex-husband’s unflattering critique of her parenting skills as of this writing.

    So how many messed up 13 year old girls KNOW they are messed up to begin with?? Trust me they are messed up…You don't live your whole childhood being yelled at at beaten with wooden spoons and whatever…have your parents hate each other and go through a divorce on TV and have the whole county (including YOUR school and friends and parents freinds) talking about it…and you are NOT messed up?? Like I said…usually the last people to know they are messed up are the ones that ARE messed up:)

    Yep they all are messed up because Kate the mom is the one who screwed up and it's her fault! Jon did nothing wrong and he is a good father!

    Jon has set such a moral life example for his children .Crawl back under a rock loser.Hold your head up Kate you have nothing to be ashamed of.

    Jon's a looser. Kate may be cranky but she takes care of the kids. And at 13, they know if they're screwed up or not. So if they say they're not, who are we to disagree

    Oh, her pic at the top of this page 'what is she smoking`, its like Kate is the defense attorney and the girls are her clients, they were coached prior to testimony, I know not every family is a fairy tale, and WE don't know what goes on behind closed doors, but I have to agree with Jon on this one, the spotlight is dimming on Kate so she has to make it brighter with Mady and Cara, it won`t be log the other children will be involved too. I honestly think its all about Kate and no-one else, she thrives on the ATTENTION!

    Half the people on her leaving disgusting hateful comments tell me how "your not screwed up"! She's a damn good mother, raising 8 kids and the twins are growing up and are smart enough to know. Hypocrites!

    Oh please! This article is BOGUS and another sordid, sad attempt at Kate trying to rehab her image so she can get another TV show. She has trained her kids well through threats, screams, and beatings with wooden spoons. I am sure Kate told them what to say. In fact, probably Kate demanded a list of questions the girls would be asked in advance from People Mag so she could drill them with the "Kate Positive" answers. Those girls have been coached. What a douche this woman is–she needs to go away but the press insists on keeping this mediawhore in the spotlight.
